The 2018 Dutch Darts Championship was the eleventh of thirteen PDC European Tour events on the 2018 PDC Pro Tour. The tournament took place at the MECC Eventcenter, Maastricht, Netherlands from 7–9 September 2018. It featured a field of 48 players and £135,000 in prize money, with £25,000 going to the winner.

Ian White won his tenth PDC title and his first on the European Tour, defeating Ricky Evans 8–5 in the final.

Prize money[edit]

This is how the prize money is divided:

Stage (num. of players) Prize money
Winner (1) £25,000
Runner-up (1) £10,000
Semi-finalists (2) £6,000
Quarter-finalists (4) £4,000
Third round losers (8) £3,000
Second round losers (16) £2,000
First round losers (16) £1,000
Total £135,000

Prize money will count towards the PDC Order of Merit, the ProTour Order of Merit and the European Tour Order of Merit, with one exception: should a seeded player lose in the second round (last 32), their prize money will not count towards any Orders of Merit, although they still receive the full prize money payment.[1][2]

Qualification and format[edit]

The top 16 entrants from the PDC ProTour Order of Merit on 30 August will automatically qualify for the event and will be seeded in the second round.

The remaining 32 places will go to players from five qualifying events – 18 from the UK Qualifier (held in Barnsley on 3 September), eight from the West/South European Qualifier (held on 30 August), four from the Host Nation Qualifier (held on 6 September), one from the Nordic & Baltic Qualifier (held on 10 August) and one from the East European Qualifier (held on 25 August).

Mensur Suljović, who would have been the number 3 seed, withdrew from the tournament prior to the draw. Steve West, the highest-ranked qualifier, was promoted to 16th seed. Erik Tautfest also withdrew prior to the draw. Two extra places were made available in the Host Nation Qualifier.[3]
